The Cody Police Department is proud to offer the Cody Community Alert Program and the Volunteer Program. In addition to these two on-going programs, the Cody Police Department partners with various agencies to provide other special programs throughout the year.
One of these special programs is the National Drug Take Back Initiative. This program allows citizens who have accumulated unwanted or expired prescription medications to dispose of them in a safe and proper manner. This event takes place twice per year and the Cody Police Department participates by providing a disposal location during the event. The next National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day will take place on Saturday, April 28, from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM at 1402 River View Drive in Cody.
For those who miss or are unable to attend during the National Drug Take Back Initiative, another available option is the Wyoming Medication Donation Program.
A program that the Cody Police Department works with and utilizes frequently is the Park County Drug Court. The mission of the Park County Court Supervised Treatment Program (frequently referred to as Drug Court) is to stop the abuse of alcohol and other drugs and related criminal activity.
In addition to working with addicted offenders, Drug Court also strives to support our community.
One way in which this is done is through community drug testing. Drug Court can provide employee drug testing for companies, including both pre-employment and random employee drug screens. Services offered include: instant result urine testing for up to 12 different drugs, laboratory testing for confirmation of on-site tests, for substances such as synthetic cannabinoids or designer stimulants (sometimes referred to as "bath salts"), and both breath and urine testing for alcohol if requested.
Also offered is confidential testing for parents who may be concerned about their children. If a parent would like to have his or her child tested, instant result and laboratory testing on all substances as outlined above can be provided. Drug Court can also send urine tests to the lab to test for nicotine. Results are confidential and are released only to the parent.
